Triumph Lingerie recently closed voting for its international annual Triumph Inspiration Award. According to Triumph’s website, the contest: “… challenges students from all over the world to use their talent, artistic vision and inspiration to conceptualize and design a unique lingerie showpiece for the year’s theme.”
Most of the pieces would definitely fall into the “lingerie couture” category, but there were some that did look like they could make the transition from catwalk to lingerie drawer. Overall, the entries featured a broad spectrum of looks and styles – from fun & funky to slinky and sexy to what the hell were they thinking? See what I mean below.
Italy - Revealing and Concealing
Bulgaria - Many Sided Individualism
Sweden - Circular Celebration
Japan - Crane Dance
Netherlands - Beautiful Damage
France - This Is Not An Icon
Belgium - Transformama
